And if you lend attentive ear to the Azerbaijani music you will hear everything that makes related it with jazz: bright melodies, tart harmony, fiery rhythms and, of course, a free improvisational spirit, which is the soul and essence of mugham art.

Maybe, thats why the jazz became a national phenomenon in Azerbaijan, and in the 60 - 70s years the surprising alloy of American music traditions with ancient culture of mugham arose in the compositions of Vagif Mustafazadeh virtuoso jazz pianist and composer, and subsequently got its definition in the history of world jazz as a mugham and jazz.

The project presents three generations of Azerbaijani jazz musicians: the older generation in the face of Vagif Sadikhov, the average one represented by Salman Gambarov and two young performers Emil Afrasiyab and Elchin Shirinov. Each of them has its own distinctive style and a unique musical manner. But all of them together constitute the phenomenon, which is called the Azeri jazz.

The special audience of all ages.
